Sausage and Sauerkraut Casserole

This recipe has been in our family for over 50 years, and it's always been our favorite casserole! Now that our four children are grown and gone, I don't often make family-sized meals...but we still enjoy this casserole often, because it's so simple to prepare and reheats nicely.

    This was wonderful!!! The only change I made was using hot Italian pork sausage instead of the regular sausage. I didn't even add salt or pepper. My family and friends loved it! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!

    I tried this recipe last night and it was very bland. It might have been better if I added more spices to it but it wasn't bad.

    I added about 1/4 cup tomato sauce to prevent it from getting dried out in the oven. A more unusual casserole, but I had leftover sauerkraut to use. It tasted good, though my kids were not crazy about it.
